Immaculate Heart Rosary, Paua Shell & Swarovski Crystals
A unique handmade rosary made with gorgeous natural New Zealand paua shell beads accented with Swarovski crystals. Paua is NZ's native abalone shell species, and the shimmering iridescent colors you see in this rosary are only found in shells from the cold Southern seas of our country.
At the center of this rosary is a color medal of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in a gold-plated frame, which has a raised image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in gold on the back. The crucifix is a radiant style, with a burst of light behind the figure of Christ on the cross, signifying His triumphant resurrection.
The Hail Mary beads are 10mm round double-sided paua coin-shaped beads, and the Our Father beads are larger ovals. All the beads are linked with gold rosary wire, which gives the rosary nice flow through your hands in prayer.
The Our Father beads are finished with tiny end caps and aqua Swarovski crystals, and then wire-wrapped to give extra strength where needed most - and to give that unique handmade look to the rosary.
Length when hanging: 63cm / 25 inches;
Crucifix: 4cm / 1.6 inches tall.
This full-size rosary is suitable for women or men, and is well-made for regular use. It would also make an excellent presentation rosary, or addition to a collection. It comes in a handmade (by me) lined rosary pouch to store it in.
